ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Guns and drugs were seized from the home of a parolee who lives across the street from an elementary school.

Just after 11:00 Monday morning, the house at 1202 Lily Pond Road, across the street from Lamar Reese Elementary, was raided.

Investigators say 33-year-old Michael Moore, who lives there, was not home at the time of the raid, but showed up a few hours later and was arrested.

"There are drugs that have been found," said Dougherty D. A. Greg Edwards. "Suspected marijuana that has been found at this location. And suspected Methamphetamine has been found. So we are assuming that all of these were tied in together."

Moore is now being held on parole violation charges. He previously served time in prison for armed robbery.
